Killcare SLSC receives clean bill of financial health


Killcare Surf Life Saving Club (KSLSC) has received over $6,000 in grants thanks to a clean bill of financial health from Surf Life Saving NSW.

As part of Surf Life Saving NSW’s audit of the club’s financial reports, the local club received the ‘all clear’ as well as a grant disbursement of $6,100.

Club president Craig Sheppard congratulated and thanked Director of Finance Therese Buckley and Heather Pate for their work.

“Therese’s financial management of the Club, particularly over the last few difficult years, has been absolutely outstanding and we’re beyond grateful to have her in the chair,” Sheppard said.

“We’re always quick to laud the successes of our lifesavers and athletes (as we should), but behind the scenes we’re required to run a fairly unique and sizeable business within a regulatory framework that only gets more complex every year.

“It’s the hours of unseen and too often unheralded work by people like Therese that enables us to put patrols on the beach, athletes on the track, in fact our ongoing existence relies on it.”

As charities, all Surf Life Saving NSW affiliated clubs are required to comply with reviews of their financial reports to check against the requirements of the Australian Charities and Not-for Profit Commission (ACNC).
